Chris Tillman continues to show Orioles can count on him

It is July 30th, and the Baltimore Orioles’ Opening Day starter, Chris Tillman has an 8-7 record and a 4.35 ERA. Uh oh, right? Well, not exactly. Last night, Tillman turned in his third consecutive outstanding start following the All-Star break. In his three starts against the Detroit Tigers, Tampa Bay Rays, and Atlanta Braves, the tall right-hander has allowed just one earned...

Chris Davis should move back to first base for the Baltimore Orioles

On June 26th the Baltimore Orioles moved Chris Davis to right field after a recent call up of Chris Parmelee due to some injuries in the corner outfield positions and some mediocre production as well. While Parmelee started to hit a little bit, it made sense to keep him up in the big leagues and Buck Showalter made the moves necessary to insure his team’s success. Chris Davis moved...

Favorable August schedule will keep Orioles in the playoff hunt

The month of August will make or break the 2015 season for the Baltimore Orioles. That’s not really earth-shattering news for a playoff contender that has played inconsistent baseball all season. The Orioles followed an 18-5 stretch in June with a 5-15 stretch that sunk their record from 41-34 to 46-49. Now, winners of four straight, the Orioles are back above .500 and just two...

Tyson Ross would be game-changer for Orioles

Yesterday, Jayson Stark of ESPN reported that the Baltimore Orioles and San Diego Padres were discussing a deal that would send Justin Upton to Baltimore. It’s been quite clear for a while that the Orioles are in desperate need of an outfield bat, especially if they want to keep pace with a re-Tulo-ed Toronto Blue Jays lineup. The Orioles have gotten next to no offensive production...

Baltimore Orioles trying to figure out what to do with Chris Davis

In 2013 Chris Davis led all of Major League Baseball in homeruns and RBIs. In 2014 it wasn’t the same. Davis is one of those players who can leave you in awe or frustration at just about any point in the season, which is why no one should be surprised that he may hold the key to which way the Baltimore Orioles turn in the next five days. Davis is suddenly on fire, he entered Sunday...

Is acquiring Chris Davis a good idea for the Cardinals?

According to my twitter follower @CubsCardsCast, MLB analyst Jim Bowden mentioned on satellite radio this morning that the St. Louis Cardinals could be a landing spot for Baltimore slugger Chris Davis. Is this plausible? What would it take? Is this a good idea? Let’s dig into the conversation on this Sunday morning. As I gulp the coffee, we run. Is it plausible? Sure it is. The...

Orioles celebrate Cal Ripken with Fielder’s Choice brew

Not anymore though, as club executive and general manager Dan Duquette held a press conference today to clear it all up.

Baltimore Orioles trade rumors: Nine days until the deadline

The MLB rumor mill has been spinning pretty fast in the last few days, and the Baltimore Orioles are right in the thick of the discussion. It seems likely that the Orioles will be buyers in the coming week, as Dan Duquette looks to improve a team that has looked no better than mediocre in the last month of play. It doesn’t seem like the Orioles will go after a top-of-the-line starting...

Orioles' Manny Machado gets knocked down by fake throw (VIDEO)

Manny Machado had to laugh at himself after he awkwardly tumbled to the ground early in the Orioles 3-2 loss to the Yankees at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. When Orioles third baseman Jonathan Schoop took the relay throw from the outfield and considered going home with the ball, Machado appeared as if he was looking for a cutoff from Schoop, who was only a few feet from him....

Outfielders available for Orioles, but do they have enough to make a deal?

A six-game stretch shouldn’t make or break a MLB team’s season. But front offices might place some added importance on games this close to the July 31 trade deadline, as they could determine whether or not a club should try to add pieces or sell them off. The Baltimore Orioles are in that sort of precarious spot beginning this week. With three games at the Yankees, followed by...

Fantasy Roundup: Tillman Turning a Corner

Looking at Chris Tillman’s performance this season, it doesn’t seem like there is any reason to consider adding him in just about any format, but his July performance has changed the script to some degree. In the 18.2 innings he’s pitched in the month, he has a 20.0 K-BB% and a 50% ground ball rate. That has resulted in a 1.61 FIP, 2.89 xFIP, and 1.93 ERA. His start Saturday...

Baltimore Orioles trade rumors: Plan of attack

The Baltimore Orioles ended the first half of the season the same way they started it, with a .500 record. The Orioles have been missing the synergy from past seasons and can’t seem to get everything to mesh together at the same time. However, the Orioles have not been playing poorly and are still very much in contention for a playoff spot. Making moves in free agency could provide...

Baltimore Orioles Slugger Chris Davis Must Have Angered the Baseball Gods

If you are looked upon as a slugger that means people expect you to hit home runs. They don't want to see you get a bunch of singles or doubles and don't expect you to get many triples (because sluggers are usually bigger guys that are not real fast). Normally, Baltimore Orioles Chris Davis is pretty good at hitting the long ball. Just not lately. He's had one in July and 19 on the...
